Swuuunngg On and there it gooooeessss – “Fronconstein” FTW – ‘Pigs Fly

Haven’t posted one of these in a while – hasn’t been one to post in a while…

BUT

as a follow-up to the Cheryl/Kram/Jr. walk-off prediction and the come-from-behind (walk-off error) victory by Philadelphia’s Taney Dragons in the Williamsport LLWS here is the Voice of the IronPigs Matt Provence with a classic, emphatic walk-off homerun call courtesy of “Young Fronconstein” (TM M. Provence).

If you witness enough baseball at Lehigh Valley’s Coca-Cola Park, you know by the sound of the bat when a ball is jacked and Maikel (don’t call him Michael) Franco’s shot to left field was certainly a ‘no-doubter’!

Before we get to the Voice one final tidbit.

Phillippe Aumont with the win!

YES – that’s what it says!

Aumont pitched 2 PERFECT, stellar innings with 3 K’s and ZERO free passes.

Hold on a sec though – he threw 17 pitches – 15 of ‘em for strikes!

YES – that’s what it says!

So we’ll take Phillippe’s best outings of his recently improving year and transition to one of the best Provence calls – ever!

The best @PigsRadio “Clip O’ The Game” EVER

So the IronPigs finished the back-end of the Norfolk series taking 4 out of 5 with an exciting 4-3 “Walk-Off Assist Victory”!

A what you say?

Well…

Ken “Miles” Giles got in a bit of trouble until Tyson “ChuckHustle” Gillies threw out the tying run at home to end the game and that folks is a “Walk-Off Assist Victory!

Maikel Franco’s first AAA triple and a “What Can Go Long Will Go Long” Jim Murphy HR (and a SAC fly) helped the ‘Pigs to their 4 runs.

Oh and how do you like that Chris Bootcheck with an amazing 0.75 ERA surrendering only 1 run in 12 innings thus far for Lehigh Valley.

That’s all well and good but not really what we are here for.

So without further ado…

Derby, Steelhawks, IronPigs, Derby, Derby, IronPigs

What a weekend I had.

Saturday started off ok and I had most of the day free. Unfortunately the Lehigh Valley RollerGirls and Lehigh Valley Steelhawks had home dates on the same night and that night was this past Saturday. Like splitting time between two loves I put more miles on my car to make ends meet.

4:00pm Saturday – I headed out to Schnecksville to visit and wish our LVRG ladies good luck in their bout. Got a good game preview and then departed for Stabler Arena and the Steelhawks.

5:00pm – Arrived at Stabler and saw three great quarters of football. The score went back and forth and the Hawks were up when I departed.

In transit I listened to the IronPigs lose. No fun at all.

9:30pm – Arrived at Grumpy’s BBQ for the roller derby after party. This is a great time. Grumpy’s puts out a nice spread of great BBQ and got the scoop on the Derby bout… they soundly defeated the Mason Dixon Derby Vixens! Yeah Derby!

I got home a little later than I should have but it was a fun day.

Sunday started out slow as well and I headed back to Schnecksville for the Rollergirl’s fundraiser flea market.

After all the flea market fun I headed out to the IronPigs and caught the last few innings with Kram, Dipro, Junior and many many others. After the game we headed out to the parking lot for a post game tailgate and enjoyed some wiffle ball, friends and Kram’s own chili dogs. (The Pigs did win)

A fun weekend.

OinK, Screech, Roll on!
